audioBoom announce more original shows and a television partnership

audioBoom announced more updates for its roster of original podcasts alongside a deal with A+E Networks. The podcasting company landed a production, ad sales, and distribution deal with A+E to produce podcasts based on the cable/television company’s existing programs. A+E Networks includes the History channel, Lifetime, and the eponymous A+E. The first program from this deal is A&E’s Marcia Clark Investigates The First 48, where the legal expert host investigates unsolved and controversial crimes. The second is PD Stories, based on the Live PD documentary show. These podcasts debuted in March and June, respectively.

In addition to the new shows inspired by the television deal, the company also plans to launch three more shows for its audioBoom Originals Network by the end of the third quarter. The only one with details shared is a program tentatively titled Dead Man Talking. British journalist Alex Hannaford hosts a show delving into the recorded confessions of Angel Maturino Reséndiz, also known as The Railroad Killer.

“The potential to drive higher margin returns by expanding AON’s portfolio remains a cornerstone of our growth strategy,” audioBoom CEO Rob Proctor said. “The success to date underpins our desire to build on the strong momentum achieved as we look for innovative ways to capture increased audience share and grow our revenue streams. We’ve already seen podcasts becoming a go-to inspiration for television producers and we’re excited to explore the flip side of that phenomenon by partnering with World Media Rights and A+E Networks to produce great new podcasts inspired by must-see TV.”
